Gase's Offense: 'Pedal to the Metal'

Posted Jan 17, 2013

Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase discusses his offensive philosophy as he begins his new role.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When Adam Gase was announced as the team's new offensive coordinator, Head Coach John Fox acknowledged the importance of offensive continuity in that decision.

Gase echoed that sentiment in his first media availability at his new position.

"It really helps because when you walk in that meeting room, you’re not starting over," Gase said. "You’re really off and running right from the get-go, whenever we start up in April.”

And Gase plans to get off-and-running in a hurry.

In fact, tempo is a big part of what Gase said he'll bring to the offense as the play-caller.

"We're looking to go pedal to the metal, play as fast as possible, be aggressive and score as many points as possible every game," he said. "Put (quarterback) Peyton Manning in a position to play as fast as he can play.”

Gase, like his predecessor Mike McCoy, said his offensive philosophy revolves around putting players in the best position to succeed.

He wants the offense to dictate what the defense does rather than react to it.

Those philosophies have been built over nine NFL seasons, and even before that in the college ranks as a defensive graduate assistant under Head Coach Nick Saban at LSU.

With the Broncos, Gase said he's grateful to be around other experienced coaches.

“I feel fortunate to be able to be around the coaches that we have on this staff, and fortunate to be around the players that we have," Gase said. "I don’t think every coach in this league can sit there and go, ‘I love every guy on this roster,’ but we have a different group of guys, especially on the offensive side. I’m just glad that I’m in this organization.”

Gase said he plans to work with Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway and Fox to add another coach to the staff, who will step in at Gase's previous job -- quarterbacks coach.

Early Thursday, Fox called Gase a "bright coach with a great future."

Gase said he plans to take his new role and run with it.

“I absolutely think I’m ready and I’m not nervous about calling plays," Gase said, noting that McCoy gave him a few series of play-calling duties toward the end of the 2012 season. "You have one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time as your quarterback – I’m excited. I’m thrilled to be able to have that opportunity."
